As a pool builder in Houston, I would highly recommend avoiding salt. Salt is extremely hard on materials and will rust anything metal in your backyard. Look into a ozone/nature2 system. Will run about 1parts per million on chlorine. Easiest to maintain and best system available. I would recommend t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)

If it comes with a Polaris 280, ask them to swap for the 9350. Their cost is basically the same and the 9350 is much better. As far as the price, it all depends on the tonnage of rock waterfall you have. You can figure $1,000 a ton is what you should pay. What is the sq footage of the decking? Tha...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

That's an average sized pool. How old are your kids? I understand the basketball/volleyball but if they are younger, that may change. I'm not saying to go 10ft, but 7 is good if they will be jumping in later. The problem with a sport pool is you are almost always standing on a slope. If you stay w...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Don't see anything wrong with that but obviously don't know price he's charging you. Jandy is what we use. I believe it's the best equipment available. Look into the ozone/fusion system. I will tell you that most people that build a sport pool (shallow, deeper in middle, then shallow again) tell...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

What's the pool perimeter? Talk to builder about an ozone/fusion system. Old style chlorine pools are are a pain. Salt water is hard on materials and will rust anything outside around the pool. Pebble finish is the way to go. Either Pebbletec or Wet Edge Pebble. Our standard dig is 3.5 on shallow,...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

I'm a pool builder in Houston. Travertine is soft so it can break easily. It gets extremely hot, and as mentioned before it's very slick. If you have kiddo's, I would recommend staying away. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Outdoor Kitchens - Fetch78 on 5/30/16 at 9:22 pm
When you find a builder, ask if they do carve stone. It's a non slid surface. Should be able to do any color, any pattern. Stamped concrete will be very slick when it first gets wet. If you have kids, can be dangerous. Stamped will also fade much faster. I build pools and outdoor kitchens in Tx. We ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
